    If you have your chicks vaccinated for Mareks and Cocci, how long are they protected, and when should I start feeding the medicated feed?

    Thankyou!

    Feed medicated with amprolium is designed to control cocci. Not quite sure why you would need it if they are vaccinated.

    The only thing I know about the Marek's vaccine is that you must have all future chickens vaccinated as well, as long as you have these.

    My chicks are vaccinated but I was wondering how long does it last? Are they immuned then or do you still need to feed the med feed for a length of time?

    Thanks!
